G/F • 6’6, 214 lbs; 3rd year, Michigan State

UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: VERSATILE WING

 

A former AP Player of the Year at Michigan State, Denzel Valentine is establishing himself as a shot-creating/scoring wing in the Windy City; very adaptable: went from role player to superstar during four years at State – can step into almost any situation and contribute; broke out in year 2 w/ more opportunity: passes well, can handle and create floaters* for himself, hits open shooters; free flowing from downtown – heat-check triples are second nature – Valentine won’t back down from anyone; good rebounder, plays a lot of 3; needs to develop a better understanding of team defense (not a natural athlete) & up overall efficiency; underrated piece of CHI's rebuild – D. Valentine's near the Star UnderDOG threshold; missed 2018-19 season (ankle surgery)
